Last quote about Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement

Frances O'Grady
There is an opportunity to do this one differently, to ensure that workers' rights are seen as a core standards, rather than an add on, that any arbitration mechanism is not only transparent, but fair. I hope people have learnt lessons from trade deals, like TTIP and Ceta, and public concern over arbitration mechanisms. If you are going to have standards for goods and services, why not have standards for labour as well, to make sure there is a level playing field and you don't get competition on the back of workers being treated badly.feedback

People who have been most quoted about Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement are: Justin Trudeau, Cecilia Malmström and André Antoine. For instance, the most recent quote from Justin Trudeau is: “The European Union is a truly remarkable achievement, and an unprecedented model for peaceful co-operation. Canada knows that an effective European voice on the global stage isn't just preferable – it's essential. Now, we live in a time when many people are worried that the current system only benefits society's luckiest few. And their concern is valid. This anxiety towards the economy and trade – the worry that our kids won't have access to the same jobs and opportunities that we had – can be addressed only if we ensure that trade is inclusive, so that everyone benefits.”.

Cecilia Malmström - European Trade

Some of the experiences, some of the procedures that we have experienced with CETA, will also be reflected in our work on TTIP.feedback

Paul Magnette

From now on, we can draw the lesson: with CETA improved, TTIP is dead and buried.feedback

Donald Tusk - European Council

I am glad for good news from PM Charles Michel. Only once all procedures are finalised for EU signing CETA, will I contact PM Justin Trudeau.feedback

John Manley

CETA is not TTIP. It is not a stalking horse for TTIP.feedback

Jean Charest

We are one of the most dependent countries in the world in regards to trade. If this agreement [CETA – Ed.] fails, it will be a disappointment.feedback

Martin Schulz - European Parliament

There is not only still hope but we are on the way to find a compromise and to find a solution for questions raised by the Wallonians, which are questions raised by a lot of citizens all over in Europe, and we have to give an answer to.feedback

Chrystia Freeland

If Europe cannot sign this trade agreement, and it's also a trade agreement with Canada, a country that very much shares, has shared values with Europe, then I think that certainly does call into question European trade policy more generally.feedback

André Antoine

A reasonable time frame would be the end of the year. With that, we could get there.feedback

Fredrik Erixon

It was a move by Sigmar Gabriel (Germany's economy minister) in order to appease critics in his own party that wanted the SPD (The Social Democratic Party of Germany) to block CETA … Wallonia (the Belgium region) has just ended up in this fight because Gabriel thought he could solve an internal party problem and that other countries would not have troubles supporting CETA. Now it turns out he was not informed about Wallonian politics.feedback

André Antoine

There's a huge mish-mash of texts. This is not serious international law... Secondly, ultimatums and threats are not part of democracy. We want a deal, we want a treaty, but we want to negotiate it with a minimum of courtesy and respect.feedback

Elio di Rupo

They took years to negotiate #CETA and we are denied a few weeks. Will we reach a solution? All depends on the contents. If it doesn't change enough, we will maintain our opposition.feedback

Chrystia Freeland

We have done our job. We have finished negotiating a very good agreement. Now the ball is in Europe's court. I hope I can return in the next few days with my prime minister to sign the treaty as planned.feedback

Martin Schulz - European Parliament

The door for every step forward is open but it is quite clear that the problems on the table are European problems. In my mind, there's no problem we can't solve. I'm very optimistic we're going to find a solution for CETA that is going to make the project better. It is already a very, very good agreement.feedback

Angela Merkel

I am optimistic that one will maybe find a solution with regards to CETA. But I can't anticipate it.feedback

Didier Reynders

Only Wallonia is against the deal, the French Socialists, the Italians and the German Social-Democrats are in favour.feedback

Sigmar Gabriel

I am very pleased that we have made a first big step, because if Europe were not able to deal with Canada, this would send a difficult signal in the world. For this reason I am pleased that we will make a big step towards finally giving rules to globalization.feedback

Anton Hofreiter

CETA accelerates globalization instead of regulating it in a sensible way.feedback

Angela Merkel

(Being an) open society also means being open for global trade .. we have made good progress on CETA now and in the European context you can expect that we will get the signing and ratification.feedback

Sigmar Gabriel

If the Americans are not ready to meet at least the standard of CETA, with Canada, then there will be no chance of a deal.feedback

Justin Trudeau

Great Britain has always been a strong and positive voice around the European table in support of CETA.feedback

Hanni Gramann

Many people from NGOs have been able to look at the documents, for example in the English version of the CETA agreement, and there we can clearly see that these are not just fears.feedback
